Endpoint:
flash point of flammable liquids
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: Test procedure in accordance with national standard methods (ASTM) without GLP.
Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
ISO No., other: ASTM-D93 Standard Test Method for Flash Point by Pensky-Martens Closed Cup Tester
Deviations:
not specified
GLP compliance:
no
Type of method:
closed cup
Flash point:
0 °C
Atm. press.:
101.3 kPa
Remarks on result:
other: corrected to standard pressure

Measurement parameters

Rotation speed of the sample stirrer: 100 rpm

Expected Flash point of the sample: 16.0 °C

Measurement

(repeat determination)

Temperature of initial ignition source application: 0 °C / 0 °C

Atmosphreic pressure: 102.3 kPa / 101.2 kPa

Flash point (uncorrrected): < 0 °C / < 0 °C

Falsh point (corrected): < 0 °C / < 0 °C

Conclusions:
The flash point of Parafol 610 was determined to be < 0 °C at 101.3 kPa.
Executive summary:

The Flash point was determined according to ASTM-D93 Standard Test Methods for Flash Point by Pensky-Martens Closed Cup Tester. The flash point was measured in duplicate at 2 different days. The value for the corrected flash point was determined to be < 0 °C.

Key result
Flash point:
< 0 °C
Atm. press.:
1 atm
Conclusions:
Under the conditions of this study a flash point below 0 °C at 1 atm was determined for the test substance, Hydrocarbons, C6-C10 (even numbered), n-alkanes, isoalkanes, >5% n-hexane.
Executive summary:

Under the conditions of this study a flash point below 0 °C at 1 atm was determined for the test substance, Hydrocarbons, C6-C10 (even numbered), n-alkanes, isoalkanes, >5% n-hexane.

Description of key information

The flash point of Hydrocarbons, C6-C10 (even numbered), n-alkanes, isoalkanes, >5% n-hexane is below 0°C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

A value of <0°C was measured using ASTM D 93 method by Sasol (2009).
